Go to solution Solved by AskTJ,

4 cores running 2 games? No.

Just wondering because im able to run two games on my laptop, but my laptop has a core i7 8750h 

 

My desktop has a gtx 1070 and 16gb ram though along with that processor

Run two games how/why.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Why did you buy a gaming desktop with a 1070 and a i3? It depends on the game really, but most demanding ones is a no no

i built it, but mainly because of budget reasons i couldn't get an i7 or i5. 
This i3 is just as good as a 7th gen i5 though,

How is easy I actually have experimented it myself where I played The Witcher 3 and my brother GTA V at the same time but that was with the i9 and 2080 Ti.

 

Why? no good reason when you have two computers capable of games which is OPs case as well since he has a powerful laptop and a desktop.

 

Unless it's stuff like Civ5 with another slow paced strategy game and you just wanna do it at the same for whatever reason? who knows.

Yeah it makes sense if you get an i3 8100 if you could spend more for the 8300 you should just have gotten the i5 8400 already which has the extra cores and edges out with the old i7 7700K.

 

Also why don't you just stop playing a game and start playing another? you really need to have both running at the same time just to switch between without need to boot the game or something?

I had a coupon for 20 percent off of the i3 8300, so it was only $10 extra

You could have just gotten a ryzen 6 core instead if you needed to run multiple games/things...

its not really a necessary thing its just that i remember playing two games when someone wanted to play multiplayer with me. I also like to download heavy files and have many things open so thats my main purpose.

Please stop senselessly recommending AMD products to everyone. I see all of your posts. And it's quite annoying. You are being an unbiased fanboy.

i'm not an AMD guy, i like buying overpriced things even though price to performance doesn't really add up. 
If i had the money i would buy the core i9 just for the hell of it, and 2080 ti.
